University of Akron student David Zamos bought educational copies of Microsoft Windows and Office XP Pro for $60 each. After realizing he'd have to wipe his computer to install them, he tried to return them. The college would not take them, neither would Microsoft. He was forced to keep them. The kid sold the un-opened pieces of the software on E-bay. Microsoft sued him for thousands of dollars in damages, their lawyers threatened to take his Ford Escort to recover $ 143.50.
